Now, 2 ShowerUp Mobile Shower Units in Nashville!!!
SlumberUp 2018 - Sleeping Bag Drive
It’s our goal to collect 600 sleeping bags by September 29th. That would provide a sleeping bag for every person that we connect with each week.
For the past 18 months, ShowerUp has been providing mobile showers and personal care to Nashville’s homeless and those in need. As the weather gets colder, SLEEPING BAGS become the most sought-after item for those that have to directly endure the elements. It won’t be long and nighttime temperatures will be getting down below 50 degrees. At that temperature, hypothermia can develop overnight.
We would love to have your business, church, family or group join together to make sure that 600 people will be warm this winter.
For those who spend their nights, in doorways, on benches and in tents, a sleeping bag is their most precious possession.
If you would like to help, you can go to our Amazon Wish List or online retailer like Academy Sports. You can also make a donation for sleeping bags to be purchased. Thanks for all your help!
What is ShowerUp?
We believe that everyone deserves a shower.
Mobile Showers for those experiencing homelessness in Nashville
In the Nashville area, there are over 5,000 (some studies put that number MUCH higher) homeless men, women and children who often go weeks and months without a roof over their heads and that means no access to a shower, basic hygiene or attention to personal care. While there are organizations and resources available to serve a variety of needs, there are fewer than a dozen shower heads available to them.
Less than a dozen shower heads for 5,000 people.
That was 2 years ago.
Since then, ShowerUp has increased the number of available showers by 50%!
ShowerUp is able to pull up and provide a hot shower, clean towels, soap, shampoo, shaving cream and razors and things that most of us take for granted. More than that though, our team of volunteers is able to engage in conversation, build relationships, demonstrate love, and create a truly caring environment.
ShowerUp also provides an excellent volunteer experience. Serving opportunities are available for every level of experience and comfort. Whether it's driving the truck and preparing for service, handing out shower supplies, cleaning, hosting, or just being there with a friendly smile and hug, Shower Up is designed to utilize volunteers with minimal training and maximum involvement.
